The Top Secret Press Elite Series - 3CORPS Silver Edition (Canceled)
A NEW high quality black core playing card deck from Top Secret Press features the artwork of the 3CORPS comic.
Welcome to the First Edition of the Top Secret Press Elite Series. This new series of decks feature high quality 310 gsm Black Core playing card on linen cardstock. Depending on Stretch Goals, this deck may also feature metallic inks on the cards as well as the awesome new all black tuckbox design! All decks and tuckboxes will be sealed.
This first deck features images from the 3CORPS #3 mini series. The Jokers are Krimson, a hero with great speed that has unfortunate side effects. The artwork is illustrated by Bill McKay (Action Labs) and colored by Ivan Nunes (DC Comics). The backs will be black and silver.
New to this deck is the 55th card! This card is a Special 'Thank You' card to the Backers as well as the artists that worked on the image. This card will be included within the sealed decks.
The all black tuckbox is an all NEW look for the Elite series of cards. If the Stretch Goal is met, the box will be highlighted in metallic silver!
The Top Secret Press Elite, 3CORPS Silver Edition Playing Card set with Tuckbox will be limited to 500 decks. Older Top Secret Press decks will no longer be printed, so the decks offered in this Kickstarter are the last of them. Often we are asked how many were printed, so here is a complete list.
Deck and quantity printed:
250 decks - The Atilio Gambedotti Set
Note: If you wish to see what the previous decks look like, just click on the deck name above and it will take you to the original project.
Also available are the 3CORPS comic books. This Mini Series was completed earlier this year, so you can still get the comics as well as all the Incentives from the other kickstarters!
I have added some Stretch Goals to this Kickstarter.
Risks and challenges
Welcome to the eighth Top Secret Press playing card Kickstarter!
In some ways, this should be called my First Deck, but technically it is not. With seven other Kickstarter projects behind me, I still felt I needed to 'raise the bar' on the quality of my product. So that is what I have done!
Introducing the Top Secret Press Elite line of Playing Cards first offering: 3CORPS SILVER EDITION! These decks feature high quality linen stock paper (310 gsm) as well as Black Core centers. Even better, if we can reach the Stretch Goals, we can unlocked metallic ink for the cards as well as the tuckbox!
(Note: I have rewrote this since the beginning of the project.)
I was originally going for a more simple deck, but I felt it was missing something. There are now 15 images on the cards that span the history of 3CORPS mini series. Every artist is represented that worked on the project as well as all of the characters. The Jokers are the Krimson from 3CORPS #3 Cover B & C by Bill McKay and Ivan Nunes. 3CORPS was the first comic I made, so i figured I should up the production some, and i did!
Also, there is yet another new feature to this deck, the 55th card. This card will be sealed in the deck. Tuckboxes will be sealed as well.
I still have some of my previous kickstarter decks, but quantities are limited. I've also listed final print totals for those interested(see above).
So saying all that, we have a higher total for this Kickstarter than normal. Obviously, adding to the quality is adding to the price. It will take a little more work, and I hope the payoff is worth it for you as well. Just stick in there and Back or Support any way you can. I appreciate all of your help!
As anyone knows there are always challenges. What they are, you never know. Some Kickstarters go really smooth, others take a bumpy road. Regardless, in the end, all hurtles can be surpassed with a little patience and effort. These days I am making my mark, and I don't really foresee any problems.
Thanks for Backing and supporting the project!
